We have been raising cattle for over 30 years. In 2013 we purchased a small herd of black and red Angus heifers and cows.
- Very hardy
- Perform extremely well on pasture and hay
- Excellent mothering abilities
- Superb marbling, making for tender beef
Since then, we have kept our best females for breeding purposes. We are slowly building this herd to numbers that are sustainable for our pastures and our farm. We begin calving in May.
From late spring to early fall the cattle are rotated through pastures on our farm that have not been sprayed or fertilized. During the winter months they are fed hay and silage that has been grown and harvested in our fields. They are fed 100% grass for their entire lives. The cattle are also provided with a free-choice ration of salt and mineral. Their winter access to water is provided in the yard by a well and during the grazing season water is provided from fenced off dugouts.
Our animals are never injected with growth hormones. We work closely with a team of exceptional large animal veterinarians and, in the event an animal becomes ill and treatment with antibiotics is deemed the only reasonable alternative, antibiotics will be used and the animal will be marketed as such. We only use antibiotics when we feel that it is the best option to promote the animal’s recovery and to minimize the animal’s discomfort.
Processing & Storage
The beef is processed and stored in a small, family- owned, government-inspected facility.
